LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he robbed an undercover officer while she was in the middle of a prostitution investigation.

It happened Monday, just after 12 p.m., near the intersection of Dixie Highway and Standard Avenue. 

Police say that as an undercover female police officer was working on a prostitution investigation, 28-year-old Antonio Pusey walked up to her, put his hands on her and -- by force -- removed money that was in her bra. He then tried to run away, according to an arrest report.

He didn't get very far, according to police, because he was stopped for robbery.

Initially, when officers asked who he was, police say Pusey gave them a false name. Police say his breath smelled of alcohol and they believed him to be a danger to himself and others.

Pusey was arrested and charged with second degree robbery, giving officers a false name and alcohol intoxication.
